Multitalented rapper, director, writer and actor Adam Deacon stars in hilarious comedy Anuvahood as a wannabe MC called Kenneth (K) . Anuvahood is a comedy amalgamation of the films Adulthood and Kidulthood that explores the how young adults without jobs in Hackney are forced into crime to make ends meet.
K is forced to start dealing drugs to save his home from the bailiffs after losing his job. He and his hopeless crew end up getting themselves mixed up in all kinds of problems, from fights to gun crime and drugs. As well as taking a humorous look at gang life, the film also explores how hard life is for the families of gang members.
In this cracking comedy one character dominates: Tyrone, the estate’s bully, who picks on everyone regardless of their age. When Tyrone steals K`s dope K must risk life and limb to get it back all so that he and his family can keep their home, and to do this K must rely on other residents from the estate.
This film explores some of the serious issues affecting Hackney through comedy, pulling it off masterfully.
